This blog is designed to explore the new Fairy Tale Tarot by Lisa Hunt. But since I LOVE to blog....I am sure I'll wander off into some other musings about fairytales!!

"The Fairy Tale Tarot cards are like gazing into that pool. They reflect different aspects of each of us. They illuminate or accentuate those parts of us that we seek, or deny, or just long to understand. The cards and the fairy tales they are based on, provide a framework for understanding self and the human aspects of life. And maybe the "not so human" aspects too....the spiritual. They are the water in the pool. Clear and shimmering, reflecting clearly and yet also bringing forth tiny glimpses of those wings. It is this aspect of the cards that called to me. I feel they have things to reveal to me and I am anxious to hear them "speak."

Three Little Pigs Spread

The three little pigs...gotta love them...I mean in some of the versions...the mom just pretty much kicks them out into the world...BAM...Could be seen as cruel abandonment or as a lesson in letting people grow up.

This spread has six cards. NUMBER ONE: represents the mother (benevolent or cruel). This is the beginning of the issue/situation/concern. Without this factor everything would have just stayed pretty much the same. It is that which started the tale so to speak.

Cards TWO, THREE, and FOUR are the houses of the three little pigs. Each one a possible solution or answer. The house were of differing qualities in the story, and so here too, the answers or the choices may be stronger or weaker than the others but that is a decision for the seeker to make. Card FIVE is the Big Bad Wolf representing something to watch out for, pointing at a weakness, a negative, or a possible challenge to the issue. Card SIX is a Fairy Tale message that can help the seeker in making a decision.

It lays out something like this:





I need to spend time playing with this to see how it seems to flow. If you try it please post a comment and let me know how it seems to work for you.
